Women in Recovery: How Wellspring Supports Women and Their Children in Recovery
-The incidence of substance use disorder amongst women has risen more than 400% nationally in the past couple of years
-It is important to support women AND their children during their initial recovery treatment and afterward, to help them get on their feet and stay on their feet
-There is still considerable stigma to overcome with respect to individuals struggling with the disease of addiction; something we all need to work on.
